"A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30 p.m." So reads a personal ad in the local paper that draws an assortment of friends and relatives to Miss Blacklock's Victorian house for the evening. Is this a game? A joke? Or something more ominous? As the lights go out, an apparent robber enters and a shot rings out, what follows in one of Christie's most fast-paced and witty mysteries for the stage. Join amateur sleuth, Miss Marple, as she provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.
CASTING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:
(British accents required for all characters unless otherwise noted):
PATRICK SIMMONS (M - 20s-30s) Julia's older brother; witty, sarcastic, a man of thoughts not action.
EDMUND SWETTENHAM (M - 20s-40s) Mrs. Swettenham's privileged son; condescending upper class type.
RUDI SCHERZ (M - teens-50s) the mysterious stranger; heavy unrecognizable accent; very small role.
INSPECTOR CRADDOCK (M - 30s-60s) the police inspector... you know the type.
SERGEANT MELLORS (M or F - 20s-40s) Craddock's cohort; very few lines
Looking to cast wonderful character actors with imaginative minds and great comic timing!
